Part 2 - Read the following text carefully.

Hawaiian teenager Bethany Hamilton became a very famous surfer


when she survived a tiger shark attack in 2003. She was just 13 years old.
Bethany wants to do great things and is going to make a difference to
the lives of people around the world for many years to come.
Bethany used to surf every day with her family. Her home is Hawaii,
surfers paradise. One morning she was surfing with some friends when a
shark attacked her. The shark bit off her left arm and Bethany almost
died.
Bethany Hamilton became a source of inspiration to millions through
her story of faith, determination and hope. And now, her story is a motion
picture called SOUL SURFER.
In the film, you can see how Bethany helped tsunami victims. She also supports a charity
organisation called SurfAid -other famous people who support SurfAid are Jack Johnson and
Kelly Slater.

Access to clean water is vital to the health of any community. In the


Indonesian Island of Nias and Mentawai Islands, many young children die
because of bad sanitation and because it is difficult to get clean water. In
2006 SurfAid began its work in Nias. The organisation works to restore
and improve water supply systems. They repaired wells damaged in the
2005 earthquake and made new systems to collect rain water. In 2009
they started a Clean Water Programme in the Mentawai Islands with
similar objectives. The goal of SurfAid is to save lives through the improvement of access to
water and heathier sanitation practices. "I am not looking for Band-Aids, I'm looking for real
lasting change so the people become self-reliant, said Dr Dave Jenkins, the founder of this
non-profit organisation that has received several international awards, and several donations
from private and corporate donors, most involved in the surf industry.
